     Mentor Families Needed!
Our amazing school need families willing to volunteer to be a Mentor to incoming New Families for our program.  It is a low commitment with high satisfaction to meet and greet a New Family to our very own PCY.  Our program attempts to match families in similar grades or one grade higher.  If interested, please email MikkiWeightman@yahoo.com with your name, email, student grade levels and if you speak a second language.  This program takes a lot of Mentors so please consider becoming one today!

     Colgate Recyling Program
PCY is entering a recycling contest! 

Now through the end of school, please bring your old toothbrushes, used toothpaste tubes (including packaging) and empty dental floss containers to the PCY library. We will ship them out to TerraCycle, a company that recycles non-recyclables. They will recycle the old packaging into a new playground, and then award the playground made from the recycled materials to a children's hospital in the state that recycles the most during the promotion.  

So not only will you help save the planet by recycling but you'll help a local children's hospital receive a brand-new playground made from recycled materials!

Just remember: all items should be used, not new. And dry! No wet toothbrushes or oozing toothpaste tubes! Bring them to the PCY Library starting Monday, April 22nd. And thanks for making a difference!
